With the regular season officially closed many FSU fans and former players are currently on social media taking a victory lap about how right they were about Mike Norvell (myself include) but there’s always been one all-time great that has been in Mike Norvell’s corner since he met him:

Casey Roddick is listed as the starter at left guard but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see 71 slide to left guard and Keiondre Jones start again.

Mike Norvell confirmed what many of us thought after watching the film again; Akeem Dent played his best game as a Seminole on Saturday night.

Jerry Palm is projecting FSU to face Michigan in the grand daddy of them all.

In rivalry news Billy Napier fired two previously highly thought of assistants on defense yesterday and it seems as though the position group players and recruits found out through social media; ouch.

Miami is losing two important players to the portal and it hasn’t even opened yet; QB Tyler Van Dyke and LB Corey Flagg.

And of course; FSU saved the best cinematic recap of the year for the for the last one of the regular season:


247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong is projecting FSU to land 3-star DT D’Nas White out of North Carolina; once Nasir Johnson flipped from UF to UGA this became clearer.

He also believes that FSU has the best chance to flip 5-star, top-ranked recruit, Jeremiah Smith from Ohio State.
